Wow , what an interesting debate . My view on the subject is that photography, like art, is highly subjective. The amount of gear we tend to use only serves as a means to an end ,but without that special " something" , all the equipment in the world cannot produce a great shot or work of art . Take pinhole photography as an example , some stunning and thought provoking works of art have been produced with little "gear" and would be impossible to make with modern technology .
The only equipment I possess is a Sony Alpha A380 , 18-70mm kit lens , a polariser filter and a tripod . Sometimes I wish I had a wide angled lens , but I have learned to get by with what I have . At the end of the day , all the gear in the world could never replace the most important piece of equipment ..........The eye.
